savings on the mandatory side and savings from winding down the war in iraq and afghanistan. these are savings that cbo scores of about a trillion dollars, that cbo scoring them at a trillion dollars. now we know some republicans will quibble over the savings but they have no leg to stand on. though war is the second-biggest policy driver of the deficit after the bush tax cuts. if conducting the war ads to the debt, it is undeniable winding down the war deliver savings. the administration tells us with the wind down their putting in place in the iraq and afghanistan, they can prosecute the war on about $630 billion over the next decade. cbo, however, assumes 1.67 trillion in war funding for 2021. by adopting the administration's lower number, we can save over a trillion. we know the republicans agree with this because they included the exact same savings in the wrong and budget that passed the house. i never criticized such accounting then and it's hard to see how they could do so now. last, senator reid's proposal allows a joint committee that has the potential to achieve e
wars, one in iraq and one in afghanistan and keep in mind, this, of course, was post-9/11. nothing, though, compares to the bush tax cuts have had on the federal budget. how does this compare to barack obama? well, we're looking at projected spending here from 2009 all the way to 2017. there is president obama's health care package, obama care, $152 billion there. discretion nair extendy tear, stimulus tax cuts, just over $425 billion and barack obama had his own stimulus package, just over $700 billion. let's look at the two grand totals here. president bush, a grand total of over $5 billion, president obama about $1.5 trillion. what this says is, yes, both presidents spent a lot of money over a long period of time but this crisis has been years in the making. >> that's one of the criticisms that many on washington have been receiving. we saw this coming. >> now it's time for a spot of weather and it's not looking like a great weekend for us in asia. in fact, if winds were howling around our building. i believe it has a lot do with the tropical storm system that's passing by here

these savings from withdrawing from iraq and afghanistan. and essential education, job creation, housing, and environmental investments where america's economic recovery and for our strong economic future would be protected from the slashing cuts proposed by the house republicans. the irony is, republican leaders previously have backed all the spending reductions called for in leader reid's plan. now, i don't agree -- and i suspect all of us don't agree with all aspects of this proposed solution. but we're not going to have 100 solutions on this floor. we're going to have one that we can vote on. i wish this would have included new revenue, especially by ending such costly and outdated tax benefits as those still enjoyed by the biggest oil companies to help us pay off our debt even more quickly. i'd like to help pay for the debt incurred by the inexcusable earlier decisions to enter two wars without paying for them. and i continue to believe the surcharge for the wealthiest would mean that they would pay more of their fair share after so many years of tax cuts that have tilted far more t
